Rebuilt and reopened on December 9th, 1993, as one of 16 all-THX certified multiplex in the world. Grand opening ad posted.

The old Peachtree twin opened on June 5th, 1975 and a 3rd screen opening on January 12th, 1979 and closed in 1993. A new 8-plex opened in 1993.

AMC is doing that to all the second run theatres they got from Carmike. Its too bad second run theatres are almost extinct.

The theater is also no longer second run (but the admission prices are lower to the other theaters in town).

I go there a lot orginal theaters are still apart of the building that’s what I like about it.

I understand that the theatre isn’t part of the mall. But the current building doesn’t appear on historic arial maps until 2004 images. Prior to that the space where the current building stands is an empty field. That’s why I suspect the 1975 building is not part of the current complex, and actually stood somewhat west of the current building.

It’s not part of the mall its behind the mall. It closed in 95 to be redone as 8 screens. The 3 orginal theaters are still alarm of it. Go there alot

Judging by Historic Aerials, the current 8-screen building (and the easern part of the mall) did not exist at the time of their 1993 photo. I would say that the current 8-screen building is entirely new and not any part of the original 2/3 screen configuration.

It got converted to 3 screens in the 80’s.93 it closed to get 8 screens
